Two Fendt high-horsepower tractors at the Green Week in Berlin 2011: 828 Vario with Joskin slurry tank and the new top-of-the-line model 939 Vario with a Rabe cultivator.
More than 1,600 exhibitors from 57 countries are exhibiting their products at the world's largest consumer show, the International Green Week in Berlin, from 21 to 30 January. The trade fair management expects some 400,000 visitors at the one-of-a-kind international exhibition for the food, agricultural and horticultural industries.
Fendt is presenting two high-horsepower tractors on the ErlebnisBauernhof (The Farming Experience), on which the latest developments in plant production using cutting-edge agricultural engineering are being presented, among other things.

“We want to inform the consumers at the world's largest food exhibition about the significance of modern farming. Fendt is presenting the possibilities that cutting-edge technology can give farmers,” commented Andreas Loewel, Managing Director of AGCO-Deutschland GmbH, at the BayWa Evening, to which the company invited 1,400 guests to the ErlebnisBauernhof on Friday. The BayWa Foundation played an important role at the event. It is active in developing countries, as well as in Germany, and promotes healthy and balanced nutrition, the ecologically sound use of energy resources and enables people in disadvantaged regions to gain access to education. Fendt already donated 50,000 euros to the foundation in December.

Even young visitors from Berlin showed great interest in the cutting-edge Fendt technology.

The ErlebnisBauernhof is being held under the motto: “Healthy industry. Healthy products” and informs about the many services and achievements of farming. One of the highlights is a presentation of the entire maize production chain from cultivation to harvesting. Fendt is exhibiting a Vario 828 and the new top model, Vario 939, which are equipped with a slurry tank and a cultivator.

The "longest gourmet mile in the world", as the Green Week is also known, is filled with culinary specialities from all continents. The partner country this year is Poland. About a third of the exhibitors comes from outside of Germany including, for the first time, exhibitors from Afghanistan and Rwanda. The top class supporting programme for the opening of the exhibition included the “Global Forum for Food and Agriculture”, in which 50 agriculture ministers from all over the world and top-level representatives from the farming and nutrition industry discussed the topic “Trade and Global Food Security: Global – Regional – Local”.

“Each year in January, prominent figures from the agricultural and nutrition industry come to the International Green Week in Berlin from all over the world to meet and discuss current issues regarding the entire agricultural industry. We use this platform to hold numerous talks with customers, dealers and representatives from politics and various associations”, according to Peter-Josef Paffen, Vice President and Spokesman for the AGCO/Fendt Management.
